On Saturday, Mar. 6th we woke up leisurely, meaning we were in no rush to get up. So, it was 7:45 when we crawled out from under the covers. Basically, an “oh, alright, I guess we should get moving”. On the weekend, we usually get up at the same time because we don't through the week. We went down to make our morning drink and returned upstairs. Susan wasn’t doing laundry, yet, so I finished my tea and sorted our clothes into two loads and we got ours started.
The sun was shining, out our window, but it was a cold, windy -7C/19F. I had no inclination to go for a walk yet. When one load was folded and put away, I popped the second one in and went out to the garage to work on the new puzzle. I’d flipped the 750 pieces over the other day and separated border pieces but didn’t start putting it together. That's when it was too warm in the garage to work. This was an interesting one that I picked up at an auction. Darn! I forget to get a picture for you. Tomorrow.
We had eaten some oatmeal and/or toast earlier but at noon when the clothes were done, I fried an egg for Bill’s toasted sandwich and one for my quesadilla. Both were devoured, we felt hungry. Bill came upstairs and I went out for my 2- mile walk. The wind was still cold but the sun was so warm. My hood was up and down a few times and I thoroughly enjoyed the walk. I stopped at the Book Barn and picked up a James Patterson book. It looked familiar but I couldn’t be sure.

Once I got back home, I checked and it was one we’d both read. Duh! Senior moment! Then I went back to putting pieces together in the puzzle. This was another fun picture and I was moving along pretty good with the lovely yellow and white daisies in the picture inspiring me. Bill and I are getting the itch for another puppy so doing some prep work online.
We have a pretty good idea what kind we want but it will be a matter of time before anything happens. When we know anything positive, you’ll know, it’s ‘out there’ somewhere for us. We're ready.
The day went along pretty quietly. Neither Bill or I felt any pressure to do anything strenuous or anything at all, for that matter. When you work through the week, the weekends are for relaxing, so we did. 😊 I went down just before 6 and turned the oven on to bake some rolls to eat with our leftover stew for supper. I also mixed up some Coleslaw and of course, we had a piece of pie for dessert. It all tasted great and we were very full when we did dishes and climbed the stairs.

After a bit of online stuff, including my post, I worked away at a crossword puzzle before settling on the bed with a new book. This time a Louise Penny, The Cruellest Month. Another good author, indicating to me that it will be a good story about Inspector Gamache. At 9, Bill joined W & S for their Saturday night movie and I hooked up my tv and dvd player to watch Catch me if you Can with Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio. It has been a very long time since I’ve watched it.

She and I went all around the mountain

Thank you for stopping around today. I hope yours was a good day too.
